4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge sour apple aroma along with wisps of spice make this tripel a delight to smell. This 750ml. bottle was very close to it’s expiration date and I think that it mellowed somewhat (a good thing in my book.) Taste is just a bit sweet and some light spiciness comes through as well. This one is very smooth and easy to drink. One of my favorite tripels so far.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the best smelling beers I ever had. The aroma permeated with the sweetness of mangos, apples and melons. Highly carbonated brew with a soft subtle frothy head that has excellent lacing. Cloudy orange brown with a good appearance. Seems to strengthen as you drink it. Complex yet subtle. Strong finish with a nice alcohol base warming the body. Enjoyed this one while watching my Philly Eagles destroy the Redskins on MOnday night football. Might have made the rating increase by .50 but who cares!

Wonderfully big, frothy head. Aroma contains lots of yeast and some fresh notes of hops. Nice bitter flavour, with some sweet citrus undertones. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The final new beer i drank in State College at my favorite bar before i moved out to smaller... yet better things in western PA. It was the only beer left that i hadnt had, so i saved it for my last one. Another delicious Belgian strong ale with a sweet, bubbly, spicy and fruity flavors and mouthfeel. Citrusy aroma and a nice cloudy golden color. The entire 750ml bottle was delicious. A fitting end to 4 years of college.
